CuJo: HHOF candidate?
If don't already have him in your Google Reader, James Mirtle is the best blog to keep up to date on the latest talk around the league. His analysis is consistently spot-on and unbiased, except for this little ditty today:
"Cujo's in a similar situation to Jeremy Roenick in that he's on the cusp of a big milestone, just one win away from tying Terry Sawchuck for fourth place on the all-time wins list, and facing potential retirement. And, probably more so than Roenick, he's a slam dunk for the Hall of Fame at some point, whether this summer is the end or not."You're smoking crack, Mirtle.
Curtis Joseph's sole piece of hardware is the Clancy Trophy. (Do they even give that out anymore?) He's never won the Cup. His peers are Patrick Roy, Dominik Hasek, Martin Brodeur and Mike Richter, to name a few.
Even with Dick Duff's induction as precedent I'm not holding my breath.
Vadim Sharifijanov (whoever you are) made a pretty astute observation in the comments of Mirtle's post:
"if you consider cujo a hall of famer, then that makes a strong case for john vanbiesbrouck, andy moog, and probably others i can't think of off the top of my head."Agreed.
